A man suspected of robbing a Chinese restaurant in Tucson, Arizona, two times earlier this year has reportedly been arrested.

Adam Lloyd Carlson, 45, robbed Golden Dragon restaurant at 4704 E. Sunrise Dr. near Swan Road for the first time on Feb. 17 at around 7:46 p.m, according to the authorities.

Officials at the Pima County Sheriff’s Department said the suspect stepped into the establishment and looked at the menu. He took out his gun and told the cashier to retrieve money from the cash register.

The second robbery reportedly occurred at around 7:26 p.m. on March 10, barely a month after the initial incident. The cashier managed to call 911 after seeing a gun in the suspect’s front pocket, forcing him to flee.
